Default boost controller -- who has used one?

any of you guys tried a manual boost controller for the baja turbo? I know I read some of you had used it in combination with other things, I am wondering if anyone has tried just using that to pump boost up 1.5-2 psi?

something like this one?

how much more boost were you able to get?
how much tinkering with it did you need to do to get the boost right?
how different was the seat of the pants feel? did the boost come on less linearly?

Thanks!

1. More boost than the motor wants (it will shut down somewhere north of 13 psi
2. Didn't have to do too much tinkering. As long as you have a boost gauge, it won't take much. Don't bother if you don't have a gauge.
3. Seat of pants felt like, well, more hp, but don't ask me how much. Real change I saw was boost coming on a sooner but not by much.

It's $60-$80 (I paid $80 but the price has dropped since then) and it's small money for something more to screw around with.
